15 Aug Rahma’s Story
My husband and I were so excited to be expecting! We took extra care with everything we did. We told his family the great news and everyone was so happy. Everything was going great!
We started planning, then one day, my biggest nightmare happened.
My husband left home around 7:30am to go to work, after he left, I felt the urge to go to the toilet and as I got out of bed, my water broke.
I was bleeding so much. I just froze!
I quickly ran to get my phone to call my husband and then ran to the toilet. I saw the foetus come straight out of me and all I did was just stare at it.
My husband came home within five minutes looked at me as I started crying and told me everything will be okay.
He called the ambulance.
We went hospital and got told we had lost our baby. There was no reason to why it happened. We both started crying, gave each other a hug and he kept reminding me that everything will be okay.
Since October 3rd 2018, I haven’t been the same person and I think about that day, every day.
